If at any time you do not feel confident enough to perform a trouble shooting method that I suggest or feel you may not have the experience or comfort level to do so please ask questions before proceeding.
Electricity is dangerous and if not handled properly can cause serious injury or worse!

Subbing this project out would be ok if the OP in this case "Marsel" knows the "ins" and "outs" and all the CODES (both NEC and AHJ) so when the sub contractor presents his/her price with the "specifics" itemized to "Marsel" he/she can look at the proposal and know for sure that his/her "sub contractor" has his/her "sh$t" together enough. Because, guess what?? Even thought "Marsel" subbed it out "Marsel" would still be "on the hook both financially and liability wise for any "hick-ups" at the end in the job (I am putting this mildly). The "main contractor" bares sole responsibility for the project. If it fails inspection etc, it is up to the main contractor to have the "electrician" return to correct the "errors". The main "contractor" will be sued if there are personal/property issues; good luck tracking down the "sub electrciain" and holding them responsible for any damages either "personal or property" if something goes wrong.
